Original Press Release
New Low Cost Double Socket Ratchet Wrench Set
Press release date: Mar 18, 2009
Each wrench in the set has a different socket combination.
Wrench #1 has a 1-1/4" x1-1/16" hex socket. Applications include turning 3/4" and 5/8" heavy hex bolts used in mechanical joint fittings up to 24" diameter, cast couplings, clamps, and tapping sleeves.
Wrench #2 has a 1-1/8" x 15/16" hex socket and is used for turning 3/4" and 5/8" standard hex flange bolts.
Wrench #3 has a 7/8" x 3/4" hex socket . Applications include turning 1/2" heavy hex bolts, 1-1/2" through 12" Hymax® couplings, and 1-1/2"-24" MaxFit(TM) couplings.
Each wrench is 12" long and has Lowell's Bolt-Thru feature which lets workers tighten nuts on long bolts and on any length of threaded rod. This eliminates the need for deep sockets or open-end wrenches.
To make using the tools more comfortable and secure, each wrench has a vinyl grip which also reduces fatigue. The grips are color-coded to make wrench identification easier in murky conditions such as a ditch or in the back of a service vehicle.
The wrenches are built for tough duty. Handles and sockets have heavy-duty construction and are coated with electrostatic epoxy paint for durability and easy cleaning. Ratchets feature a reversing control located in the head of each wrench to reverse the action safely and conveniently and ratchets are semi-enclosed to minimize fouling.
The sets are available through local distributors.
